    These are some of my favorites of the "light-skinned" vehicles. I have numerous shots of this one. One I like in particular is my Heinrich Hoffmann PK Press photo showing General der Kavallerie Eberhard von Mackensen is his command vehicle somewhere on the Eastern Front. He is in it along with a Sergeant and standing just outside of it is an Artillery Major. If I can find a way to start posting pics? ill do so.
